Keeping doctor’s appointments is important, but to those needing in-home care, it is imperative to maintain routine health checks and updates to avoid emergency room visits and/or readmission to the hospital.
AYSHC clients and their families have an assistant to take a client to appointments. Many family members or friends willingly forego lunches, leave work early, take personal time or miss work without pay entirely to take a loved one to appointments.
AYSHC assistants take the schedule juggling off their hands, leaving family members and friends the ability to meet at the appointment site and return to work or other schedule demands, or, have the assistant handle the entire appointment and provide a detailed update.
All clients still want and deserve to look and feel their best, regardless of whether they are able or want to leave their home.
For those clients, AYSHC will bring a licensed and certified barber and salon service to them.
The feeling of being pampered goes a long way to improving everyone’s outlook. A client’s limitations due to illness or injury make this experience even more important.
The bank, post office, a birthday gift and card, something from a local restaurant for lunch, taking homemade cookies to a friend, or just a drive on a pretty day – no errand is too little for our clients. With GPS tracking while on the clock, clean driving records and current auto insurance according to State law, a client and their family can trust that their loved one, their errand or outing are in capable, trusted hands.
HOME HEALTH / HOSPICE SUPPORT
While Home Health is most often a temporary service ordered by a client’s physician for specific care by skilled nurses, physical and/or occupational therapists for a period of time of rehabilitation, Hospice is most often ordered by a client’s physician in anticipation of the end of life.
In both cases, AYSHC has assistants with the certification and training necessary to provide support and continuation of the care on a daily basis.
